Silhouette Patterns sew-alongs

Peggy Sagers of Silhouette Patterns is so generous with her webcast sew-alongs.
There isn’t much information about them on the Silhouette webcasts replay page, so here are more details.

Videos are about 1 hour long unless otherwise noted.
Webcasts may start with a general Q&A section, sew-alongs don’t.

I haven’t included any of Peggy’s Let’s Sew YouTubes, which are demos rather than sew-alongs.

TOPS – woven

Silhouette blouse patterns generally have 1” of armhole ease and no shoulder pads. Some light casual jackets are in the ‘Tops’ pattern section as they have the same armhole as the blouses.

The fit/ blouse draping video she refers to in the first sew-along isn’t available any more. Here’s a recent webcast about fitting and variants of the 600 blouse (blouse content from 5.20 – 8.40, 10.25 onwards).

  1. I am getting back to sewing again, and well cannot really figure out how to get my bust size.
    I was watching a program tonight and it was on a blouse pattern about going up on the bust size,
    I have been wearing exercise bras so really never got to measure anything. So how do I know that I have to increase the bust size and to what? I have lost 40 lbs and now going down another 30 so for me it is hard to see what I am at.
